Schemes for 2017 Texas Longhorns football team[edit]

SCIAC Standings[edit]

How confident are you with the 1926 SCIAC football standings? San Diego State joined the conference that year, and the SDSU media guide reports them having a 1926 record of Overall: 3-4-1, Conf: 1-3-1. University of La Verne joined in 1925, and I show them with a 1926 record of Overall: 3-2-2, Conf: 1-1-2. That would change several schools' records, right?

College football warehouse has CalTech with an overall 4-3-1 record, Occidental with an overall 4-4-1 record, Pomona with an overall 5-2-0 record, and Redlands 0-8-0. All of those would be changes to the existing template.

Thoughts? Ocfootballknut (talk) 02:52, 9 January 2017 (UTC)

Ocfootballknut, here's the source I used, which UW Dawgs dug up. http://static.psbin.com/5/m/x5k85yxyitg1pi/SCIACStandings.pdf. La Verne is first listed in the standings there in 1927. Jweiss11 (talk) 03:08, 9 January 2017 (UTC)
Also, which website exactly did you find those overall record for CalTech, Occidental, Pomona, and Redlands? Jweiss11 (talk) 03:11, 9 January 2017 (UTC)
Cal Tech: http://www.cfbdatawarehouse.com/data/incomplete_data/game_by_game_discontinued.php?teamid=474&year=1926
Occidental: http://www.cfbdatawarehouse.com/data/incomplete_data/game_by_game_current.php?teamid=2363&year=1926
Pomona-Pitzer: http://www.cfbdatawarehouse.com/data/incomplete_data/game_by_game_current.php?teamid=2601&year=1926
Redlands: http://www.cfbdatawarehouse.com/data/incomplete_data/game_by_game_current.php?teamid=2684&year=1926
SDSU Media Guide showing SDSU as part of SCIAC in 1926: http://grfx.cstv.com/photos/schools/sdsu/sports/m-footbl/auto_pdf/2016-17/misc_non_event/history.pdf#page=32 The 1-3-1 conference record for SDSU in 1926 only works if you include La Verne.Ocfootballknut (talk) 06:54, 9 January 2017 (UTC)
P.S. I compared the PDF file you referenced to the cfbdatawarehouse (1926-1938, the only years I care about). The differences are:
1. 1926: SDSU & LaVerne not listed
2. 1929: SDSU beat LaVerne; game missing from PDF file records
3. The order in 1931 is strange
4. 1932: Can't have 3 total conference ties (has to be an even number). Online data shows Whittier without a tie
5. 1933: Really different. Whittier, LaVerne, Occidental, Pomona
6. 1938: Online data includes UCSB; printout does not. Without UCSB's game included, SDSU's media guide record doesn't work. Ocfootballknut (talk) 07:15, 9 January 2017 (UTC)
Found a 1926 article in the Los Angeles Times that shows the standings for the SCIAC, including La Verne and San Diego State: https://www.newspapers.com/clip/8740926/southern_conference_nov_15_1926_la_times/ Ocfootballknut (talk) 06:02, 4 February 2017 (UTC)
Have more definitive documentation from 1926 showing LaVerne & SDS in the SCIAC (including the 1927 San Diego State yearbook where they discuss being part of the conference). I've adjusted the template and entered links to the documentation in the talk page. Ocfootballknut (talk) 07:42, 21 February 2017 (UTC)
I just downloaded an article from the San Diego Union October 3, 1926 stating that the game they played on 10/2/1926 was their first conference game. Also on the same page an article about La Verne says the same thing.Ocfootballknut (talk) 18:30, 28 February 2017 (UTC)

Self-redirect[edit]

Hi Jweiss11. I noticed that you created Santa Barbara State Normal School as a redirect to itself. I assume that this was a mistake, so I'm letting you know so that you can edit the page to redirect wherever it was supposed to go. Thanks! —Granger (talk · contribs) 19:36, 12 January 2017 (UTC)

Cal State Long Beach vs. Long Beach State[edit]

As a graduate of Cal State Long Beach and a resident of the area, I'm not sure why we have to use a name that hasn't been correct for over half a century. Unlike San Diego State and San Jose State, Cal State Long Beach didn't request the State of California to revert the name to Long Beach State when it was changed in 1964. I guess we have to call it Long Beach State in Wikipedia for some reason, we can, but it's not correct. And when my daughters were considering going there, it was never called Long Beach State either. I'm not saying that term doesn't exist, but it's certainly not the preferred name. Ocfootballknut (talk) 03:53, 13 January 2017 (UTC)

What really matters is how reliable third-party sources refer to the school's sport teams. You can see that ESPN calls them the "Long Beach State 49ers" here: http://www.espn.com/mens-college-basketball/team/_/id/299/long-beach-state-49ers. Jweiss11 (talk) 04:27, 13 January 2017 (UTC)

Pete Pederson[edit]

Jweiss11, I know you usually add links in the "Year" column of the yearly college football seasons. I would have done so myself for Pete Pederson's article but I wasn't sure what NCAA classification the schools were respectively in during the 1940s and 1950s. Mind taking a look and filling in where appropriate? Jrcla2 (talk) 14:23, 23 January 2017 (UTC)

CCAA in Division II[edit]

Is there any reason the CCAA is missing from List_of_NCAA_Division_II_football_seasons, and related pages? If not, I'd be happy to add their data from 1973-1981 (when they stopped football). Ocfootballknut (talk) 07:42, 21 February 2017 (UTC)

Andrew Turzilli[edit]

If you would be so kind as to go to Wikipedia talk:WikiProject National Football League#NFL biography infobox or Talk:Andrew Turzilli, you would see there is an on going discussion about the issue. Do not add Kansas until consensus is reached. (talk page stalker) CrashUnderride 16:50, 9 March 2017 (UTC)

I saw the discussion. There's clearly no consensus to exclude Kansas. And it defies common sense as well. Jweiss11 (talk) 16:51, 9 March 2017 (UTC)
Of course there is no consensus to exclude, seeing as we are in the middle of the discussion. There certainly wouldn't be a consensus either way. Kmanblue and I had agreed to leave it as it was, with just Rutgers, until a consensus, either way, was reached. (talk page stalker) CrashUnderride 17:04, 9 March 2017 (UTC)

On the last Sunday of every month, the Boardroom at Ace Hotel New York hosts Action Equals History — a unique opportunity for New Yorkers to learn hands-on in a technology training/workshop session about the mechanics, practices and benefits of Wikipedia and the Wikimedia projects. This is an opportunity for all to gather, share and work collectively towards a more robust account of history.

For this month, and following on the recent Art+Feminism campaign, we'll focus on building better edit-a-thon tools for a variety of different thematic campaigns, and user-testing them with the community. Towards a goal of advancing these tools for wider use with diverse local groups.

Newcomers are very welcome! Bring your friends and colleagues! --Pharos (talk) 05:14, 21 March 2017 (UTC)

University Division[edit]

I have searched newspapers.com trying to find reportage on the creation of the NCAA University Division for college football in 1956. I came up blank. However, I did find confirmation that, as of 1956, the NCAA Service Bureau kept separate statistics for "major college" and "small college" teams. See, e.g., here. So, is there a list available somewhere showing which schools were considered "major" and which were "small"? I found conflicting information on this question. For example, I found this list from a Virginia newspaper in Dec 1956 showing the records and schedules of the 98 "major college" teams. I also found this list and this one, both from November 1956, showing the Chicago Tribune list of the records of 167 major college teams. (The Chicago Tribune continued to publish a broad "major college" list in 1957 here) The Chicago Tribune lists have almost 70 more teams listed as "major" than does the first list. Does one of these groupings correspond to the "University Division"? I've not found an answer to that. Do you know? Cbl62 (talk) 16:50, 1 May 2017 (UTC)

College Division[edit]

When I finish with Division I-AA, I'll probably create the weekly ranking pages for the Small College division (UPI from 1958-1974, AP from 1960-1974). They would be in the same basic format as 1991 NCAA Division I-AA football rankings. Couple of questions ...

  • The entire category of Small Colleges is missing from Template:NCAA football rankings navbox. Is it okay to add the Small College category to that navbox?
  • Champions in the Small College division don't currently have their own category. For example, the 1966 San Diego State Aztecs football team currently goes directly to Category:College football national champions. But Division I-AA/FCS, for example, has its own subcategory below that (Category:NCAA Division I Football Champions). Should the Small College champions continue to go into the main category, or should the Small College division have its own subcategory? Ocfootballknut (talk) 23:47, 5 May 2017 (UTC)
Ocfootballknut, yes, seems reasonable to add a new section to that navbox for the Small College rankings articles. As for 1966 San Diego State Aztecs football team and the other Small College division champion articles, a new subcategory of Category:College football national champions could be created for them.

How much of the damage that was inflicted has been undone and how much remains to be fixed? I'd be happy to help clean up the mess. Lepricavark (talk) 16:35, 8 May 2017 (UTC)

The damage appears to be much greater in scope than I initially realized. I have reverted a sizable portion, but there appears to be much more that remains. I hope I haven't overstepped my boundaries and I won't revert anymore until I hear back from you, but I just can't understand why all this destruction was necessary.

Do we go ahead?[edit]

We've pretty much got a consensus – group all together, same order as it has been. Question is do we go ahead and start applying this to the articles not or do what this guy says and go to the Village Pump? Corkythehornetfan (ping me) 04:12, 25 May 2017 (UTC)

I say be bold and start grouping. Although there's hardly anything bold about it. No need to get the limeys involved. Lizard (talk) 04:47, 25 May 2017 (UTC)
@Lizard the Wizard: I'm asking so I have others on board. As soon as I start, someone will revert me so this is just a precautionary step. Corkythehornetfan (ping me) 04:52, 25 May 2017 (UTC)
Corky, my recommendation is to completely ignore Eggishorn's closure of the conversation and his ruling on scope of applicability. Let's finish the conversation to hash out any unresolved details, if there are any. Then when you are ready to deploy, please do so uniformly across all North American sports biographies. Jweiss11 (talk) 07:11, 25 May 2017 (UTC)
I personally think we've gathered all of the details (at least that I can think of), and don't need any further discussion. As mentioned above, we have consensus – group all together, same order as it has been in the past – basically we're just slapping the {{Navboxes}} template around the navboxes. This does lead me to those that are grouped currently (awards and honors). If we're going to group all of the navboxes together, there is no need for them to be grouped by themselves, so my recommendation is to ungroup that and include them with the rest of the navboxes. If you have any other details you think needs worked out, please share. I will probably start on this project next week after I return from the Holiday weekend. Corkythehornetfan (ping me) 07:22, 25 May 2017 (UTC)
The only detail left I can think of is the minimum number of navboxes needed to invoke the grouping. Three? Four? Jweiss11 (talk) 07:26, 25 May 2017 (UTC)
Most generally, in a regular article like Notre Dame Fighting Irish football, I would start grouping if there are three navboxes aside from the main football navbox... so four all together. Bagumba even mentioned here that the NBA project does 3 or move navboxes... I'd personally go with three myself. I do have another question: for current coaches, do we leave the current team's navbox and current conference navbox out like in Bob Stoops article or do we just group it all together? I'd personally go for leaving the current team outside the grouping and then move it to the appropriate space when they leave that position... Corkythehornetfan (ping me) 07:44, 25 May 2017 (UTC)
In NBA, we generally leave "current" navboxes like current roster and current team X's list of head coaches outside and on top. And the magic number for grouping is 3 or more. See WP:NBAEL.—Bagumba (talk) 14:27, 25 May 2017 (UTC)
I am not a fan of leaving the coaching navbox for current team outside the nest. It is not a "current" template, it is a historical one and belongs after the other coaching navboxes in an article. Rikster2 (talk) 02:34, 10 June 2017 (UTC)
I was more describing what was being done, not necessarily my opinion. I see you changed it for Steve Kerr. I'm fine with it grouped as well. All things being equal, less is more.—Bagumba (talk) 06:13, 10 June 2017 (UTC)
I agree with Jweiss11, go ahead and implement, as this is as strong a consensus as we can realistically expect to get for this. And silence by others does count for something. I don't think many outside of these NA sports WikiProjects are going to care or understand the nuances of the problem we are discussing if you bothered with an RfC. The major NA sports stakeholders and ones who care enough to implement the mass changes have had their say. Once the changes get traction, I think Wikignomes will just copy and follow suit. WP:NBASTYLE has pretty much been stable and implemented with less than a handful of editors ever caring to discuss it. The closing really wouldn't matter much even if it was worded stronger in favor of an overall NA sports consensus. Consensus can change, so you wouldn't just be able to rest on the closing forever anyways. Unless new dissenters are organized enough to establish a new consensus, they shouldn't get very far if they chose to edit war.—Bagumba (talk) 14:43, 25 May 2017 (UTC)
Agree. I've invoked WP:SILENCE many times because sometimes people just don't give a damn. Lizard (talk) 15:48, 25 May 2017 (UTC)
Thanks, guys! I'm glad we're on the same page now! I'll start on Monday, May 29, when I return from vacation. Corkythehornetfan (ping me) 18:31, 25 May 2017 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Point Skyhawks football[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on Point Skyhawks football requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about a club, society, or group, but it does not credibly indicate how or why the subject is important or significant: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such articles may be deleted at any time. Please read more about what is generally accepted as notable.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, and you wish to retrieve the deleted material for future reference or improvement, then please contact the deleting administrator. Nördic Nightfury 09:33, 9 June 2017 (UTC)

Template:Infobox NCAA football school[edit]

Jweiss, what's your opinion on the white box around the logos? I'm thinking of removing it because personally, I don't think it needs to be there, but it would also be consistent with other college sports infoboxes. I've done a test on it at Template:Infobox NCAA football school/testcases and personally think it looks better without the box... thoughts? Corkythehornetfan (ping me) 06:53, 8 July 2017 (UTC)

Bob Foster (American football, born 1941)[edit]

This article does not quite make sense. The head coaching records numbers do not calculate, and the infobox list of positions cannot be accurate since he was never a head coach at Oregon. I'm guessing a copy and paste error. Aboutmovies (talk) 03:40, 15 July 2017 (UTC)

Aboutmovies, thanks for making those catches. The head coaching record total must have been a copy/paste error. And Foster was the defensive coordinator at Oregon. I just made those fixes. Jweiss11 (talk) 14:49, 15 July 2017 (UTC)

Survey Invite[edit]

I'm working on a study of political motivations and how they affect editing. I'd like to ask you to take a survey. The survey should take 5 minutes. Your survey responses will be kept private. Our project is documented at https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Research:Wikipedia_%2B_Politics.

Survey Link: http://uchicago.co1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_80J3UDCpLnKyWTH?Q_DL=3dz0m2ubQw1KSnb_80J3UDCpLnKyWTH_MLRP_0CHD8RDE3zQ8f41&Q_CHL=gl

I am asking you to participate in this study because you are a frequent editor of pages on Wikipedia that are of political interest. We would like to learn about your experiences in dealing with editors of different political orientations.

Sincere thanks for your help! Porteclefs (talk) 19:57, 28 July 2017 (UTC)

Idaho's colors[edit]

White font on Idaho's gold is nowhere compliant... see here. Black (#000005 according to the university brand guide is much easier to read... see here.

The Wikipedia Asian Month Edit-a-thon @ The Met will be the Metropolitan Museum of Art's second edit-a-thon, hosted on Sunday November 19, 2017 in the Bonnie Sacerdote Classroom, Ruth and Harold D. Uris Center for Education (81st Street entrance) at The Met Fifth Avenue in New York City.

Following the first Met edit-a-thon in May 2017, the museum is excited to work with Wikipedia Asian Month for the potential to seed new articles about Asian artworks, artwork types, and art traditions, from any part of Asia. These can be illustrated with thousands of its recently-released images of public domain artworks available for Wikipedia and Wikimedia Commons from the museum’s collection spanning 5,000 years of art. The event is an opportunity for Wikimedia communities to engage The Met's diverse Asian collections onsite and remotely.

10:30 am - 4:00 pm in Bonnie Sacerdote Classroom, Uris Center for Education
81st Street entrance, Metropolitan Museum of Art, 1000 Fifth Avenue

Attendees should bring their own laptops and power cords. Light snacks, drinks and cake will be provided.

We also welcome remote participation for the global online Wikipedia Asian Art Month, running November 1-30.

Thanks, and hope to see you at the museum, and/or as part of the online Wikipedia Asian Month contest!--Pharos (talk) 16:36, 1 November 2017 (UTC)

User:Drew1830[edit]

May I ask your input on a matter. User:Drew1830 has been inserting coaching and support staff sections into all Miami season articles, which by itself is fine. However, his edits are problematic in that (i) he has been formatting these things in ways that are incorrect (overcapitalization, misplacement, lack of citations), (ii) when I tried to clean up his work, he immediately reverted, (iii) when I asked him to stop and discuss, he refused and continued reverting, and (iv) he takes the position that the articles are "his work" and that nobody should change them without first discussing with him.

Carleton Knights football[edit]

Thank you for reviewing Carleton Knights football. If you have any suggestions for improving the article, please let me know. I don't know what rem stands for in the edit summary so I don't know why you removed the coaches template or Carleton Knights category. - Mnnlaxer | talk | stalk 14:26, 5 November 2017 (UTC)

Mnnlaxer, thanks for the message and your work on the Carleton Knights football article. "Rem" simply stands for "remove" in those edit summaries. I removed the coaches navbox because it's not standard to put those navboxes on any team article; see Michigan Wolverines football and many others. Generally speaking, an article should not sit on a given category and a parent or child of that category. Since Category:Carleton Knights football is a child of Category:Carleton Knights, it over-categorization to put Carleton Knights football in both. See Wikipedia:Categorization for more on that. Jweiss11 (talk) 14:38, 5 November 2017 (UTC)
Thanks for the clean up. I improved the layout and added a bit. Not a big deal, but don't you think the article is above start class? I also think the coaches template should stay. Articles like Michigan have lots of coaches wikilinked in the text and a link to coaches in the main template. For Carleton, it provides a lot of unique information. - Mnnlaxer | talk | stalk 23:20, 5 November 2017 (UTC)
The article is maybe borderline C-class. It could still be expanded a great deal. Many of those coaches, like Walter Hass, should be mentioned in the body of the article. Also, the line in the lead about Carleton winning "winning 20 conference championships from 1905 to 1956" is dubious. I'm not sure they were a member of any conference before 1920. I see that the Carleton website notes "1905: The Carleton football team wins the first of 10 championships in the next 13 seasons." I think these championships may have been some sort of state championship among the small Minnesota schools, not a conference championship. Jweiss11 (talk) 02:08, 6 November 2017 (UTC)
Ok. It could obviously be expanded, it just doesn't resemble the start-class description at all. But not important. You're right on the almost OR for 20 championships. Pre 1920, I've seen references to Minnesota Collegiate Athletic Conference (unfortunately a juco conference now) and the Minnesota-Dakota Conference. I'd be fine with whatever you think appropriate for the lead. - Mnnlaxer | talk | stalk 03:26, 6 November 2017 (UTC)
I tend to be pretty conservative on rating articles. Feel free to ask others at Wikipedia:WikiProject College football to review the article. I won't protest if anyone rates it C-class. It definitely needs some work for B-class. As for the lead, I think we ought to go with the 11 verifiable conference championships. Jweiss11 (talk) 03:42, 6 November 2017 (UTC)
I guess you are. Besides the current ref to 10 out of 13 championships from 1905 to 1917, there is this on page 108, "Since 1895 and including the present year [1915], Carleton has had twelve championships and has tied twice for the championship." And on page 112 says "The conference rules of the Minnesota-Dakota Conference, of which Carleton is a member..." here. I think that's good enough to keep "over 20 championships" in. What do you think? Also, please don't delete the external links to the individual records and the 1992 video. There's no justification for that. - Mnnlaxer | talk | stalk 05:19, 6 November 2017 (UTC)
The justification for removing those links is we don't include oddball random external links featuring minor aspects of the subject of the article, because there's no limit to the number of such links that could be included. We also don't include links to subpages of the subject's official website. Generally you only want to link to the subject's official website and any relevant listings in definitive resources for which external links have been standardized with a template.

What are your sources for Eddie Lynch coaching in 1931 and George Gibson in 1938? - Mnnlaxer | talk | stalk 13:43, 6 November 2017 (UTC)

Lynch, 1931: https://www.newspapers.com/clip/14927020/star_tribune/; Gibson, 1938: https://www.newspapers.com/clip/14926998/star_tribune/. This Eddie Lynch appears to be a different person from Eddie Lynch, but I'm not entirely convinced this isn't all the same person. Jweiss11 (talk) 13:49, 6 November 2017 (UTC)
Thanks. MWC records show Carleton won championships in 1923, 1925, and 1926. http://midwestconference.org/sports/2010/7/27/GEN_0727104448.aspxMnnlaxer | talk | stalk 14:07, 6 November 2017 (UTC)
Thanks. I just made changes to Claude J. Hunt accordingly. Jweiss11 (talk) 14:11, 6 November 2017 (UTC)
Not the same Eddie Lynch. That one, Edward J. Lynch went to Catholic from 1925 to 1929. This one, Edward B. Lynch, went to Dartmouth 1920-1922 and coached at Dartmouth, Minnesota, Carleton, Wisconsin, and Iowa. sourceMnnlaxer | talk | stalk 19:21, 6 November 2017 (UTC) Another Eddie B. source. - Mnnlaxer | talk | stalk 19:25, 6 November 2017 (UTC)

I started a thread on the external links I'd like to include at Wikipedia:External links/Noticeboard#Carleton Knights football. - Mnnlaxer | talk | stalk 15:19, 8 November 2017 (UTC)

I think you are too slavishly following a standard that is too restrictive. Can you point to a college football team article that contains a good example of an allowable external link? - Mnnlaxer | talk | stalk 21:02, 8 November 2017 (UTC)
Off the top of my head I can't think of any, aside from the official websites. Virtually all seem to just have the official website listed, and with good reason. If someone wanted to standardized links to team pages at https://www.sports-reference.com/cfb/ or another good website like that, I'd be okay with that. Jweiss11 (talk) 21:09, 8 November 2017 (UTC)

I meant to replace that one eventually since there's a lot of PD cards to choose from but it looks like WO-9 beat me to it. Lizard (talk) 15:31, 8 November 2017 (UTC)

More Carleton Knights football[edit]

Hey, thanks for reassessing the article. Would you be interest in starting articles on Warren Beson and Dale Quist, two head football coaches? I've got some sources on the talk page. I could use your experience in starting the articles, I'll chip in after. Thanks. - Mnnlaxer | talk | stalk 03:40, 17 November 2017 (UTC)

If I kick off the Beson and Quist articles, will you give up on the 1992 video external links deal? :) Jweiss11 (talk) 16:23, 18 November 2017 (UTC)
Nice try! I have no problem with the offer, but no deal. How about if you convince Beestra to allow the external link, I'll stop posting on the college football notability thread? - Mnnlaxer | talk | stalk 17:22, 18 November 2017 (UTC)
Since some are being really stupid about this, I'll make clear that I was not serious about an actual deal. There is no way anyone would be able to convince Beestra of anything! :) - Mnnlaxer | talk | stalk 23:24, 18 November 2017 (UTC)
